Hello everyone

Last weekend (long weekend holiday) - I went camping in the Flinders Ranges (near Port Augusta, about 300km north of Adelaide for any of you who wish to look it up) This area is the "doorstep" to the massive Australian outback.

I captured a few "simple" landscapes, just because of the wonderful colours there... red earth, yellow wheat, green foilage and blue sky (with white clouds).

Comments anyone? (I'm sharing 2 photos).

And here is photo 2 - taken at the same spot, just facing about 90 degrees in a different (southerly) directly to photo 1.

Thanks all. Looking forward to your feedback.

Hello Paul,

Very nice, vibrant colours indeed and fine compositions. Not hard to imagine the vast areas. Small details make you want to come back. Splendid pictures. Thank you, Paul

With pleasure : )

The observer is drawn in by your intended vanishing point in # 1 emphasized by the foreshortening poles of the fence!Besides I liked your use of the diagonal axes of clouds and foliage on the righthandside). As for the colours you mentioned; indeed, very much so! IMO, youcould haveused a narrower aperture here, like f/11 or 13, for sharper foreground.

As for #2, kind of setting where a focal length of 10mm shines!!Whatyou mentioned about the colours in #1 is also true here for me...I loved the feeling of desolation by the vastness of the piece of landscape you captured. Still, a lower point of viewthan a human's height might look more dramatic with that focal length, imho.

Thank you for sharing these inspiring images, my friend!

Hello Torgny,

Thanks for your kind comments and appreciative nature of the Australian nature! I've only once been to Scandinavia, but would love to visit your country and spend a while!!!

Hi Bahadir

Well my detailed friend, your keen eye picked up on a number of possible improvements. Yes I only noticed too late (at home) that I should have chosen a f11 or f13 aperture to get that front bush also in focus.

Maybe I should have tried the "lower perspective" for photo 2... but I did want to get the "third red, third yellow, third blue" perspective happening. I'll scroll through my other photos to see if another lower perspective one to share...

Cheers!

Hello Musket

Thanks for appreciating the colour and clarity that I aimed to share here. It's great to have your feedback.

Regards

Paul
